  1. A Prosperous Qing Dynasty: 1875 - 1900

    1875 - 1883 In 1875, shortly after the accession of the Guangxu Emperor, Empress Dowager Cixi becomes severely ill from liver problems and then dies. This left Empress Dowager Ci'an by herself, so she appointed Prince Gong to rule by her side as co-regent. Gong took his job seriously to the...
  2. What if the Russian Revolution (1917-1923) had failed?

    On 1917, the Bolsheviks rose up against the Russian Empire and its government. They wanted Russia to end their involvement in World War I. The revolution ended with the Bolsheviks winning. A provisional government was created, which was then overthrown by the Bolsheviks because the new...
  3. Realistic Longevity of Frederick III

    Kaiser Frederick III died in 1888 at the age of 56 from laryngeal cancer and is considered by some to be a missed opportunity for the German Empire (whether or not he's nearly liberal as believed is another thread entirely). The cancer seemed to have been caused from a lifetime of smoking. How...
  4. German Qing Cultural Diffusion

    Lately, as I've been revisiting my interest in a German influenced Qing Dynasty, I've decided to explore the subject of cultural diffusion. Inspiration for this subject came from a time I ate a sandwich from a Vietnamese vendor and learning about how baguettes were introduced during French...
  5. AHC: A Qing Dynasty Constitution Modeled After the Constitution of the German Empire

    I like to believe that if the Qing Dynasty did become a constitutional monarchy, the German Empire's model would have been more suitable for them. That way, the emperor could still wield actual executive power. I have been able to find an English translation of the German constitution to serve...
  6. AHC/WI: Alliance between the French and German Empires

    This is probably on the far end on the probability scale, but what would it take for both a Bonapartiste French empire and a Hohenzollern German empire to not only exist at the same time, but become close allies as opposed to otl's fight for dominance over Alsace-Lorraine, and how would this...

    Politics of the Central Powers After an Early Entente Victory?

    I'm in the planning stages of my first Post-1900 timeline, and I've decided to focus it on the aftermath of an early Entente victory in WW1. I'm considering PODs like Plan XVII being rejected or the British Expeditionary Force advancing between the German 1st and 2nd Armies. Would either of...
  8. Let There Be Peace in the Great European Plain: A History of Teutons and Slavs in the 19th Century.
    Threadmarks: ACT 1

    “The secret of politics? Make a good treaty with Russia.” -Otto von Bismarck. ACT 1: “The White Negroes of Europe”: The History of Persecution of the Polish People, by Piotr S. Wandycz. It would be incredibly hard to pinpoint the moment when Poles became the most undesirable people of...
  9. Nazi Rise in a Austrian-German Empire

    Basically, Austria is the one that wins the Austro-Prussian War (whether in gives away Hungary or not, you can choose), and yet despite butterfly effects, a Fascist-esque state wins the elections, either after they lose some form of WW1, or perhaps for different reasons. Please make the best...
  10. Alliance between China, Germany, and the US

    With a pod in 1820, how can we get an alliance between the United states, a Prussian Germany, and a modernized Qing? What smaller allies would also be part of this pact, how would the coming great war between powers go, and what will the world look like after?
  11. WI: Central Victory Beer Hall Putsch

    The Central powers in 1916 with Brest-Litovsk gains in the east and a status quo peace in the west (though France is likely drowning in debt). After the war Germany enters a period of liberalization into a constitutional monarchy with leftists being voted into the Reichstag. Conservatives are...

    Cultural Impact of WW1 ending with a Stalemate/Prolonged Cold War?

    As the title says. World War 1 ends in status quo ante bellum followed by a prolonged Cold War between Central Powers and the Entente. How would this impact cultural development, self-identity and various art movements? OTL during and after the Cold War there was/is a notion (albeit one that's...

    AHC: WW1 with pro Central Powers Serbia/Greece and Pro Entente Bulgaria/Ottoman Empire

    AHC: Devise a scenario for how WW1 begins and unfolds with a pro-German/Austro-Hungarian Serbia and Greece alongside a pro-Entente Bulgaria and Ottoman Empire. What are the preconditions for such a system of alliances to emerge? How would the war play out assuming in the event of an Entente or...
  14. "Revolution Plowed the Sea" What if Latin America was a Great Power?

    This is a series of maps originally posted to r/imaginarymaps that tries to portray a world in which Latin America became a Great Power through the alliance known as the "Panama Pact" and eventually getting into a Cold War with the German Empire, I'm not really sure how much lore I'm allowed to...

    WI: Italy knocked out of WW1?

    The Battle of Caporetto was a resounding defeat for Italian forces, sending them into full-on retreat from the Austro-German advance. However the Italians stalled their advance at the First Battle of Monte Grappa, defending the plains toward Venice and stabilizing the front, later scoring a...

    Discussion: What Does A Pax Germania Look Like?

    To address the modded in elephant in the room, I think Kaiserreich, much like base HoI4 nerfs the victors of ww1 in the interest of storytelling and gameplay. While that's fine, this thread is more discussing things like culture in TTL, or economics, potential rivals in the later century, etc...

    Chapter 0 - Prologue and Timeline of WW1 So before I begin, I'd like to mention this is far from my first time posting to ah.com. However, it has taken me quite a while to actually commit to a timeline on such a level as what you're going to read through, and without spoiling too much, I'd...

    AHC: WW1 Western Front In Germany

    OTL, Germany's more aggressive response to the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, including the first declarations of war and invasion of Belgium, meant that little fighting was done on the Kaiser's home soil. Your goal is to have a major part of the western front be in Germany for over a year...

    Our Cold War: An Alternate History Interactive Cold War

    No one believed that the German empire could rise after the Great War, having barely managed to hold in the West, and basically failing to hold anything east other than Poland. Their ally, Austria-Hungary, risked to collapse from ethnic conflicts, and had to cede vast territories to Serbia and...
  20. Wilhelm II dies young: Kaiser Heinrich of Germany 1862-1929?

    The mortality rate of 19th century royalty was fairly high, e.g in 1892 Albert Victor, second in line to the British throne died suddenly. Had a similar fate befallen the then Prince Wilhelm of Prussia - who would grow up to become Kaiser Wilhelm II, the fate of Europe might have been very...
